Privacy is important to us. When using our website, we only process personal data to the extent necessary to provide functions or services.  

The processing of personal data such as name, address, e-mail address or telephone number is always in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and the BDSG. Below we clarify the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, we inform data subjects of the rights to which they are entitled by means of this data protection declaration.  

Please note that Internet-based data transmissions generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.  

 

 

2. Recording when you visit our website  

Every time our website is called up, we collect certain general data and store it in so-called log files on the server. This concerns, among other things, the IP address, the provider of the accessing system, the operating system used, the browser used, the website from which our website was forwarded and other similar data.  

We do not use the data processed in this way to draw conclusions about a specific person, but only to optimally present or improve our website. The data is used to display the content of our website correctly, to protect our technical IT systems from attacks or, in special cases, to provide the law enforcement authorities with the information they need. If necessary, a statistical evaluation is carried out in order to increase the level of data protection and IT security in our company. The anonymously collected data, which is stored in the log files, is stored separately from all other personal data that users pass on to us.  


 

3. Legal basis of processing  

We process personal data solely within the framework of the applicable law and therefore only if one of the legal circumstances of Art. 6 Para. 1 DSGVO or the consent of the person concerned is given.  

Legally effective consent to data processing by data subjects is possible under Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR if we provide sufficient information about the type of data processing and its purpose beforehand. 

According to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR, personal data can be processed to fulfill a contract. This is the case, for example, when goods are delivered or the data is required to provide a service. Pre-contractual services are included here, such as customer inquiries about our products.  

According to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR, processing is possible if there is another legal obligation to do so, as is the case, for example, with the storage of personal data for tax reasons.  

Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. d GDPR permits the processing of personal data in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.  

Finally, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR allows processing if this is necessary due to the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail. Such an interest can be affirmed, for example, in the case of an existing customer relationship. Our interest in the processing activity is to be seen in cases where we want to conduct our business for the benefit of our company, our employees and shareholders.  

The aforementioned regulations mean that the storage of personal data can be required by law, for example, or is necessary because a contract cannot be executed otherwise. Those affected can contact us in individual cases and we will clarify the reasons for which the respective personal data is kept by us or processed in another way.  

 

4. Duration of storage

Personal data is stored in accordance with the respective statutory retention periods. As soon as such a period has expired, the data in question will be routinely deleted unless another justification allows further storage.  


 

5. Deletion routines and blocking of

personal data  

In accordance with the legal regulations, we process and store personal data of the persons concerned only for the period necessary to achieve the storage purposes or if other legal regulations permit this. As soon as the storage purpose no longer applies and there are no other justifications, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the corresponding statutory provisions.

10.Cookies

Through the use of cookies, we can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. Cookies are used on many websites. They often contain a so-called cookie ID, a unique identifier. Internet pages or servers can thus distinguish the individual browser of the user concerned from other browsers that contain other user-specific cookies.  

Cookies can be used to optimize the information and offers on our website for the benefit of the user. Cookies enable us to recognize the users of our site. The purpose of recognition is to make it easier for users to use our site.  

Those affected can prevent the setting of a cookie by our website at any time by means of the appropriate setting in the browser used. Almost all browsers such as Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer and mobile browsers provide this function. In addition, cookies that have already been set can be subsequently deleted from the system of the person concerned. If a user deactivates the acceptance of cookies by the browser, it may not be possible to use all the functions of our website to their full extent.  


 

11.Google Analytics  

We use the product "Google Analytics". The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. Google Analytics is an internet analysis service. Internet analysis is the collection, collection and analysis of data about user behavior on a website. Among other things, information is recorded such as which website a person concerned came from (so-called referrer), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page was viewed. An Internet analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.  

We use the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for the internet analysis. This means that the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is shortened and anonymized by Google if our Internet pages are accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.  

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze visitor flows on our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile reports for us that show the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.  

Google Analytics places a cookie file on the user's computer. This is the only way for Google to analyze the use of our website. Every time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by us, is called up, the Internet browser on the computer of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google gains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties. 

There is the possibility of data collection and processing  by Google and to prevent such. For this, the program under the link  https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout  be downloaded and installed. It is an additional program for the browser which tells Google Analytics that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. Google sees the additional program for the browser as a contradiction.  

Additional information can be found at  www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy  and under  www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html  be retrieved. Google Analytics is available at this link  www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics  explained in more detail.
